HIV transmission risks from anal fingering

Can you contract HIV from anal fingering your partner if you had cuts/scratches on your fingers?

Lesbian sex and HIV Transmission

Hi,

I would like to know what is the chance of getting HIV from "scissoring" with a woman? We did not use the protections and I am quite sure we both were sexually aroused.

Am I in danger?

Bye. I have a problem and I hope you can answer my question. I was with a man who is HIV positive. I went to him. He had a wound to his leg, but I can't remember exactly if it was a scab, but I don't believe it was an open wound. I touched his wound accidentally with my hand several times, until I noticed the wound. I didn't have any open wounds on my arm, and I don't think he was either, but I'm still not sure about him. I had a few calluses on my arm. He then gave me an oral - Blowjob, which lasted about 20 seconds, and I told him to stop, I didn't finish. That was all. Am I at risk of getting HIV?

one inch bleeding scratch

Thanks!

Facial Extraction

Good evening.

Last year I went to do a facial to remove black heads.

The tool used was a comedone extractor. One end is a loop and the other end is a lancet.
It looks something like in this link:

I had a lot of acne and blackheads at that time.
I don't remember if the lancet was used on me. If I remember, I only remember the loop being used on me.
However, I shouldn't make assumptions.
I asked the staff how they cleaned the equipment and they said that they only drenched it in rubbing alcohol.
They said that they boiled it, but another staff said that they only drenched the lancet and the loop with alcohol (asked a few weeks after).
After that they clean it with tissue.

I had a lot of acne at that time so there was bleeding. I remember them using their gloved fingers to pop the pimples. I don't know if a lancet was used to pierce
the pimples.

This happened in Hong Kong so US sterilization rules don't apply here. The people that did the procedure on me didn't speak English so I had trouble communicating with them. I think they didn't boil the comedone extractor tool as shown in the picture.

This post says that the risk is negligible: http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/blackhead-remover-risky-0

Is it negligible in my case? Do I have to get tested? I've been really bothered by this event. Please do answer.
My parents told me that I'm going to be fine, but I keep worrying about the situation.
This link as well: https://www.medhelp.org/posts/HIV---Prevention/Any-Risk/show/2028666

I've called the HIV helpline in Hong Kong:
https://aids.org.hk/?page_id=7700
and they said that it only involves very little blood and I don't need to get tested.
She said:
(1) Profuse bleeding needs to occur, like in a war when someone gets wounded. She said a facial wouldn't have profuse bleeding. I further searched and
i compared what happened to me with getting a tattoo. A facial would have significantly less blood exposure than a tattoo. Am I right?
(2) The needle was not hollow so the risk is lower. Lancet pricks are apparently negligible to no risk. I think there was no customer before me for at least 30 minutes
to an hour. Does this mean that the risk from a facial would be negligible to zero? There was a lancet and a loop on the other end. Pimples were popped by
squeezing.
The local free testing services won't let me get tested because they said that the scenario I explained was no in the list of risky activities.
But there was bleeding and a lancet. My mind keeps comparing it to the risk of tattoos because the skin is repeatedly stabbed. I understand modern tattoos have a
reservoir (hollow) so is high risk but other tattoos needles are not hollow if I'm not mistaken.

Do I have to get tested?
Should I worry about Hepatitis C too?

I need someone that has proper English to clarify my situation. Please it has been bothering me.

Thank you whoever you are for answering.

Fellatio with condom on a man

Hi, i've been searching all over your forum, but i got mixed answers so i'll ask it directly. Is it performing fellatio (giving head) with a condom to a man, low risk or negligible?

thank you

Massage incident, anxiety, PEP

Dear Helpline,

I realise you are unable to answer all questions you receive and I did find elements back in previous posts that partly answers my concerns but still, and as I am anxiety ridden I am unable to make a risk assessment of my own situation gathered from these previous posts. It would mean a lot to me if I could receive at some point your risk assessment and advice. It's why I resend my question in more detail than sent-in earlier on Monday. I find myself checking your website for a reply and reading over and over posts that somewhat relate to my experience, some reassuring me, some raising my anxiety.

This is what happened.
I had a back massage in Russian high end hotel, that though not intended to be a sexual massage turned into one. As the therapist progressed through the massage (I was naked under a towel - he was clothed) the therapist started to pay particular attention to my buttocks (and to which I must I kind of encouraged him) rubbing vigorously my ass cheeks, crack and applying pressure to my anus. I don't think there was any in insertion of a finger, I only remember some tapping and applying pressure, but being all oiled up I am in hindsight not entirely sure that there was no shallow insertion or that it remained external (this is how I remember it and reviewing it shortly after the incident when my mind wasn't clouded over with anxiety yet). I tried to recreate amount of pressure that I remember, by pressuring my own finger against my anus, to see if that would constitute finger insertion). The problem is that my anus tends to bleed easily from wiping or toweling (almost always leaving a tiny red dot or mark on toilet paper or towel). I reckon that with the pressure used it might be torn, just as it would be when wiping.
At some point and while at it the therapist asked me something in Russian that I couldn't understand. He also locked the door. I now fear that he might have used spit or cum or even ejaculated on me while massaging. I didn't see him ever getting naked, but earlier his crotch brushed against my hand and I could feel he was aroused. My question now is and in a scenario that he did ejaculate on my buttocks or had sperm on his hands from masturbating or coming in his pants at some point and would have rubbed my torn anus with it or shallowly inserted a finger, what that would mean in terms of risk for transmission. At the same time I had 2 open blisters/ wounds on my ankles from wearing the wrong shoes the day before. they were covered with silicone bandaids of which one had come loose already. So there was another wound/broken skin there.

Again, I don't know for a fact that he would have used spit or ejaculate on me. I was face down all the time. But it really freaks me out now thinking that he might have. I had just done an HIV test early July in order to get my visum and now find myself worrying sick about a possible change in status.

This to the point that I flew home earlier to Belgium and went straight into emergency in order to get a PEP prescription. For that I aggravated the incident in order to make sure to qualify for a prescription. I am not proud of that. Please don't judge me for it but I felt I needed to do something with my panic. I took my first pill at 45 hours after the incident. That being said, I now find that the prospect of continuing a PEP treatment for a month to come is already mentally exhausting and not necessarily helpful for my anxiety. Can I please get your professional advise on this mess I brought myself in/your risk assesment?

So I guess my questions are:
Does rubbing spit on a torn anus consists a risk?
Same question for being ejaculated on or having sperm rubbed onto the anus, or a foot wound, or a shallow insertion?

Thank you!

HIV from insertive oral sex?

Hi, I'd like to know about some things related to oral sex. Is it possible for the insertive person to get HIV from rough deepthroating? What if there's bleeding during the oral penetration? I've tried to find the answer, but I have not found any specific answer to this question.

SALIVA RISK

Hi,
i would like to know if i have any risk for HIV.
A women did a handjob with her saliva she spat two times and then she made me a blowjob with a condom.
I ejaculate in the condom.
Do i have any risk of HIV in this situation?
I don't remember if there was blood in her saliva. I'm not sure.
Thank you so much.
